Last week we showed you what would happen if a terrorist nuclear bomb were to detonate in Chicago. Some of you may have been surprised at not only the devestation brought to the center of the city, but the lack of devestation to nearby areas. In this video we up the ante a bit and show you the effects of a typical ICBM delivered warhead from a major superpower. What would this weapon, 25 times more powerful than the last, do to Chicago?

You cant help but think of Oppenheimer's statement after trinity. Im sure we will eventually reap what we sowed at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

That is a great tool (mostly because you can put ANY size nuke in there).

I'm pretty OK as long as the closest target to me is hit with something 7mt or less. At 8 or 9mt, it's dicey, but at 10mt, we're doomed. More likely than not, we wouldn't face anything hitting there over 5mt, though if multiples hit there, could be a bad day at the ranch....

For fun, choose the 100mt one. Holy crap that's a HUGE damage radius!

My thoughts exactly

This is not so much a visual aid, but I used this in my research. It tells quite a bit more information than most of the generic nuke mappers:
